At the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Domestic Preparedness, Venesco trains state, local, tribal, federal, private sector, and international responders to address hazards, such as terrorist attacks using weapons of mass destruction. Our trainers develop and deliver classes on deterrence, prevention, and response to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive incidents; mass casualty incidents; and incidents involving hazardous materials. With a cadre of 120+ active instructors, we deliver an average of 500 courses annually.


Venesco’s certified athletic trainers support U.S. Army & U.S. Air Force military treatment facilities and physical therapy clinics. Under a personal services contract with the U.S. Army Medical Command, our 45 certified athletic trainers are embedded at four initial-military-training and basic-recruit-training depot locations. Our trainers provide all-hazards training and injury mitigation to soldiers. They are licensed and credentialed experts concerned with musculoskeletal injury care, injury prevention, and human performance optimization. In addition, we provide the U.S. Air Force 23rd Medical Group with athletic training support using physical therapy modalities and musculoskeletal injury care & prevention services aimed at human performance optimization and rehabilitation.
